The Welsh Future Education Leaders Programme

The Welsh Future Education Leaders Programme is a collaboration between The Staff College, ADEW, WLGA and the Welsh Government. It builds upon up the highly successful Welsh Leadership Programme for Directors and has been co-designed with serving Directors specifically for the education sector in Wales. The programme content also draws from other senior leadership programmes offered to aspiring directors across the public sector in England and Scotland and provides an opportunity for senior officers in Education to learn from each other and together prepare for the next phase of their careers.

If you are a Director, line manager or other appropriate senior colleague and would like more information on the programme, please contact
